SPRING-FORD SUMMER MUSIC LESSONS
The Spring-Ford Music Department strives to make every student musically literate through creative, engaging, and sequential instruction so they can find meaning in the art of music.
All students in the Spring-Ford Area School District are invited to participate in a five-week private lesson program during the summer break. Lessons are available for:
* Students who currently play a band instrument
* Students who desire to start a new band instrument
* Student who would like to take classical vocal (singing) lessons (grades 7 through 12)
* Students wishing to study strings over the summer should check out the Cool School program being offered this year.
The benefits of summer study are tremendous, and private study will ensure continued musical growth throughout the summer months.
This series of five weekly private lessons, taught by the Spring-Ford music teachers and local music specialists, will begin on Wednesday, June 28, 2017 and will conclude on Thursday, July 27, 2017. Tuesday and Wednesday daytime lessons will be from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Student participants will receive a 30-minute private lesson each week, for up to five weeks, at a cost of $20 per 30-minute lesson. Your child must be able to attend a minimum of three lessons.

JOIN SNAP COMMUNITY WALK THRU
Spring-Ford Students Need an Alternate Party (SNAP) parent volunteers, with the support of the Spring-Ford community, have spent the past 10 months preparing for the annual SNAP Post-Prom Party. The 2017 Post-Prom theme is “GAME ON!” Thanks to the hard work of volunteers and community members, SFAHS juniors and seniors will experience a night they’ll never forget, as the high school is transformed into a true trip across America.
To extend their sincere thanks, SNAP volunteers would like to invite the Spring-Ford community to attend a very special Community Walk Thru Night, in appreciation for their ongoing support. The Community Walk Thru Night is open to all Spring-Ford community members, families and children of all ages. Community members will get to participate in many of the Post-Prom activities that SFAHS students will enjoy, including:
WHEN: Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
WHERE: Spring-Ford Area High School, 350 South Lewis Road, Royersford
